PE and Sport Premium

School Sports’ Funding


 To continue the legacy of the 2012 Olympics, each year, all primary schools are awarded the Schools Sports’ Funding as follows.


For the academic year 2020-2021 the school received £21,150 PE and Sports Premium.

For the academic year 2021-2022 the school has been allocated £22,100


How is it spent at Norbreck?


The funding is spent on increasing opportunities for all children. This ambition has been achieved by increasing the amount of time children spend being active during and after the school day with an increase to the amount of sports on offer and the skills training they receive.

To achieve these ambitions, we contract with external companies linked with the Wyre and Fylde School Sports Partnership who provide us with in-curriculum and out of curriculum activities.

All children from all Key Stages therefore benefit from high level coaching in a range of sports and skills.

The impact of this is that Norbreck children have been and will continue to be up-skilled in their understanding of healthy living and exposed to a wide-range of sports and activities.


Some of the in-curriculum and out of curriculum activities to be delivered by Wyre and Fylde this academic year are:

  • Archery
  • Quidditch
  • Healthy Heads with an additional multi-skills club
  • Dance
  • Yoga


Other uses of the funding are:

  • Funding professional development opportunities for teachers with internal training.
  • Covering the costs of releasing primary teachers to attend external training/conferences.
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games.
  • Increasing the quality of materials which are used to teach and lead primary PE.
  • Increasing the after school opportunities for children of all ages and abilities.


We have extra programmes in school which are offered for free by Blackpool Community Trust such as:

  • Y4 Fit 2 go programmes
  • Lunchtime clubs
  • Y3/4 girls football ASC


Extra-Curricular Activities offered at Norbreck are:

  • Boys and girls football teams
  • Netball
  • Athletics
  • Table tennis
  • Badminton
  • Cricket 
  • Tae Kwondo
  • Fencing


Children take part in competitive events against other schools in the local and wider area including football, netball and athletics. Also, in Year 5, children take part in ‘Bikeability’ cycle training. 


The school has been awarded a School Games Bronze Award 2018-19 for its commitment to sport and games.





Swimming and water safety is a statutory part of the National Curriculum, with the aim that by the age of 11 (the end of key stage 2) all pupils should be taught to:


  • pace themselves in floating and swimming challenges related to speed, distance and personal survival
  • swim unaided for a sustained period of time over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use recognised arm and leg actions, lying on their front and back
  • use a range of recognised stroke and personal survival skills (such as front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke, sculling, floating and surface dives)
